October Lux Box review

LUX BOX* £10.00 +£2.95 p&p

The October Lux Box arrived on my doorstep around the 1st of November and I know that most customers were getting very impatient again. I am not going to lie, I wasn't overly excited about the contents, but I think that the box is quite interesting, especially for fake tan lovers and anybody who likes to try out new brands. 

Three out of five products are from the same brand- TanOrganic. The trio includes a fake tan spray, a tanning mitt and a tan eraser. There was also a black eye pencil from  MODEL CO and a little set of two skincare samples from KIMIA. 

Four out of five products are full size and worth over £50, quite a good deal in my opinion. 
I tried every single product from the box and I really like everything except the eye pencil. It was quite dry when I tried to swatch it, so I didn't really want to use it on my sensitive eyes

The self-tan is really nice and looks natural. It is very easy to use and absorbs quickly and lasts on my skin for  about 4-5 days. I will probably review it separately, because I love organic products and I would like to show you the effect you can achieve with this spray.
The tanning mitt is a standard applicator and works well with the spray. The eraser is brilliant for exfoliating before self-tanning or to scrub off old fake tan, when it starts to appear patchy.

Overall, quite a good box and great value for money. I included prices and more details below.

I also wanted to mention the announcement from the Lux Box facebook page about the November box :

"Due to some unforeseen circumstances, and issues arising with missing boxes etc from October's Box, Future Pink Media & Events’ first LuxBox will be in December
. Have no fear Luxies, it will be an extra special LuxBox full of Beautiful Goodness! So to clarify there will be no box in November and we're working our little Lux butts off to merge the boxes and to make up for this. We are aiming to have more content and more products than the standard five! We hope that you understand and are excited about receiving more Lux Lovelies! The projected dispatch date for the Christmas LuxBox will be December 15th, but as we say this is only a projection for now."
